But while The Gypsy King was offered to witness the Wembley Arena bout in person, he has declined the invitation from promoter Eddie Hearn.

"This is Tyson Fury, the Gypsy King," he said addressing his social media followers in a video.

"Just a quick one guys, I will not be attending any boxing this weekend. For all the rumours this weekend that I'll be attending some boxing, I will not be.

"Don't expect fireworks, don't expect any action from the Gypsy King because I'll be grafting, I'll be working as usual, always staying fit and ready.

"Good night and god bless."

A crowd of 1,000 will be allowed in to watch Joshua-Pulev this weekend, the first major British boxing show to welcome fans back since the coronavirus pandemic.

You can watch Joshua-Pulev for £24.95 on Sky Sports Box Office this Saturday night.

All customers outside of the UK will be able to watch the fight on streaming platform DAZN for £1.99.
